Simple Vase sympathy card

Wow, say that title three times fast! What a mouthful! Here's a quick card I made with the new PTI Asian Fusion set.

Vase is stamped in Memento Bamboo leaves and then embossed with clear embossing powder on kraft cardstock. The flower stem is stamped in Versamark then embossed with clear ep as well. Bazzill green cardstock was used to layer and as a back drop to the designer paper (DCWV, Linen closet) that was cut using the labels eight die. Sentiment is from the same set and is stamped in Palette Noir.

I used a Copic marker to color the silk flower, attached a button and used some scrappers floss to add some pizazz!

The back ground of the base of the card was done using one of the border stamps from the same set. I stamped it in Versamagic Wheat and then sponged around the perimeter.

If I was going to do this again, I think I would have used an ivory colored cardstock to stamp the vase on, but the kraft does add something a bit different and unexpected. What do you think?
